EastEnders’ Lacey Turner has TWO famous actress sisters
EASTENDERS actor Lacey Turney is not just one, but TWO soap star siblings.
Lacey, 34, is best-known as Stacey Slater on EastEnders – a character she has played on-and-off since 2004.
But around the time of her first EastEnders departure in 2010, her two younger sisters – Lily Harvey and Daisy Turner – were making their TV debuts.
Daisy Turner, then 20, was 20 years old when Hollyoaks, a rival soap, launched in 2011. She starred as Jenny Houston.
Daisy spoke to the Liverpool Echo about the difficulties she faced when she was just starting, while Lacey was an established soap star.
She said: “All three of us do it. Lacey, Lacey, and I were children when we acted. Our mum, Bev, let us do everything – singing, dancing and acting.
“I was at home with my mum and sisters when I got the call to say I’d got the part. Lacey assured me that she would be there if I needed her.
“I suppose there is a bit of pressure because she is very good at what she does.
“She has done it for years and I am just starting out.”
Sadly, Daisy’s time on the show was short-lived, as Jenny was bumped off by serial killer Silas, as part of a long-running plot line.
